Joe Girardi not returning as Yankees manager

Yankees decide not to bring back Joe Girardi as manager Joe Girardi out after 10 years as New York Yankees manager

The New York Yankees have chose to part ways with manager Joe Girardi for the 2018 season, the team announced.

According to ESPN, Girardi leaves his position after 10 years at the helm. Girardi took the Yankees to within one game of the World Series this season and next year should be even better.

This is a developing story, check back for updates.

As a catcher, Girardi played for 15 seasons with three World Series titles in four years as a member of the Yankees.

"I want to thank Joe for his 10 years of hard work and service to this organization", general manager Brian Cashman said. He has a tireless work ethic, and puts his heart into every game he managed over the last decade. "He should take great pride in our accomplishments during his tenure, and I wish Joe and his family nothing but success and happiness in the future".

After that game, Girardi accepted responsibility for not challenging a call that would have ended an inning with his team up five runs rather than load the bases and lead to the Yankees' biggest blown lead in a playoff game since 2002.

Girardi released a statement as well, sounding disappointed that he wouldn't be returning for another season with the Bronx Bombers, and casting doubt on initial reports that the split was mutual.

Girardi had been spotted at the stadium the last few days. But on a positive note, the Yankees battled back to win the final three games of the series.

The team late Thursday morning made it official and issued a statement, thanking Girardi, but adding, "Everything this organization does is done with careful and thorough consideration".
